Sleep Apnea/Snoring Treatment

The Lack of Sleep Can Rob You of your Life!

Yes, snoring can be a disruption in the bedroom, and fixing it can do the work of a dozen marriage counselors. It’s time to recognize there’s a lot more to snoring that could keep you up at night.

Sleep-related dental problems such as GERD (heartburn/acid reflux) and bruxism (teeth grinding) may be signs of more serious health risks including stroke, heart disease, arrhythmias and esophageal cancer. Plus, there are proven links between lack of sleep and a host of problematic symptoms including depression, memory loss, hypertension and weight gain.

TAP Sleep Care  effectively treats the full spectrum of sleep-disordered breathing, offering you a holistic, more intelligent approach to your well-being that can dramatically improve your quality of life.

Dr. Douglas Harman and Dr. Julie Hawley will have you sleeping easy again.

SNORING • SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT:  THE BASICS

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.  A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health.

This technology not only allows you to advance your lower jaw with greater range than any other device, it also makes it incredibly comfortable and easy to adjust your device while it’s in your mouth. TAP Sleep Care lets you take ownership of your therapy by achieving optimal results on a gradual, night-by-night basis.

Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is:

  • Comfortable
  • Easy to wear
  • Quiet
  • Portable
  • Convenient for travel
  • Easy to care for

Oral appliances are customized using digital or physical impressions and models of your teeth. These models are sent to a dental lab where the appliance is made.

You’ll  find  your symptoms, and your quality of life, can improve dramatically when you remain committed to your treatment and use it nightly.

It is likely that you will sleep better, have more energy and feel sharper throughout the day. You may find that your bed partner begins to sleep better, too!

Treating sleep apnea promotes a healthier heart, body and mind. With your dentist’s help, you can improve your sleep and your health!
